Category’s Most Comfortable and Terrainable Side-by-Side Ready for Fall Hunt and Harvest
CYPRESS, Calif. – September 16, 2014 – The Yamaha Motor Corp., U.S.A., 2015 Viking Side-by-Side (SxS) is rolling off the U.S. assembly line in Newnan, Georgia, just in time for fall hunting and harvest. With class-leading cab room and comfort, and superior handling and off-road capabilities, the Viking is a tough and hardworking utility-based vehicle that is also fun to drive.
Yamaha’s 2015 Viking is a three-person SxS vehicle featuring a driver-directed four-wheel drive system, the industry’s most durable and reliable automatic transmission, and the most natural feeling electric power steering (EPS).
“The 2015 Vikings are in production and rolling out to dealers across the country this fall,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha’s ATV/SxS group marketing manager. “From the summer farm shows to farmers and hunters who are starting to harvest crops and game in the field, we continue to get great feedback from current and future Yamaha Viking owners.”
The Viking’s unique cab configuration allows for pass-through bucket seating and maximum headroom without sacrificing critical ground clearance. Automotive-style controls engage the 686cc engine, and Yamaha’s three-way On-Command® system, featuring 2WD, 4WD and 4WD with differential lock, is driver-controlled with an automotive-type rotary dial selector. Yamaha’s Ultramatic™ transmission with high, low and reverse has proven to be the industry’s most durable CVT system and provides the most natural feeling all-wheel engine braking.
The Viking’s rear steel cargo bed was purpose-built for durability and convenience. Large enough to carry a fully loaded pallet, the assisted dump bed can pack up to 600 pounds of equipment and supplies while the standard two-inch receiver hitch is rated to pull 1,500 pounds.
The Viking features nearly 12 inches of ground clearance at the lowest point, a full steel-composite smooth skid plate front-to-back and side-to-side, and an optimized frame with upturned side rails allowing for smoother transitions over obstacles. The Viking’s long-travel four-wheel independent suspension is perfectly balanced to provide a plush and comfortable ride with a quality damping feel in rough terrain, all while carrying either a light or full load.
Standard EPS models come in Steel Blue (MSRP $12,799), Hunter Green with sun top (MSRP $12,999), Red with sun top (MSRP $12,999) and Realtree® AP™ HD camo with sun top (MSRP $13,599). The 2015 non-EPS models start at $11,799 MSRP.
A new 2015 Special Edition in Matte Silver comes with a hard sun top, cast aluminum wheels, over fenders, mud flaps and the Yamaha accessory bed rail mounting system (MSRP $14,049).
Every Yamaha Viking is assembled in the U.S.A. at Yamaha’s factory in Newnan, Georgia, for worldwide distribution.

CYPRESS, Calif. – August 19, 2014 – Yamaha Motor Corp., U.S.A., has launched a new Viking VI “Build Your Own” (BYO) site providing customers the opportunity to personalize and accessorize their vehicle online. Current and potential Viking VI customers can now see what their customized machine might look like via an interactive site at www.YamahaViking.com.
Yamaha currently has more than fifty accessories for the Viking VI, which is the only true six-person Side-by-Side (SxS) vehicle with full utility and off-road capabilities. The new 2015 Viking VI model was announced in June 2014 and production is now in full swing with vehicles being delivered to dealers across the country.
“The Viking VI is a incredibly versatile machine made for farmers, hunters and recreational enthusiasts,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha’s ATV and SxS group marketing manager. “Yamaha is helping customers personalize their vehicles with Genuine Yamaha Accessories that are developed in tandem with the vehicle to ensure the highest quality, durability and performance standards along with the best fit and finish.”
The versatility of both the Viking and Viking VI creates an ideal platform for personalization. Existing and future Viking or Viking VI customers can now virtually customize their SxS via the BYO tool on the Yamaha website to get an idea for what accessories best suits their needs. The Yamaha accessories division is supporting that customization, and the versatility of the Viking vehicles, by developing and sourcing a comprehensive catalogue including popular products like roofs, windshields, storage boxes and sound systems that can be ordered directly from and installed by Yamaha dealers.
